Youth and Beauty-Synonymous – Strength Magazine – May, 1926

I was sitting in the casting office of a movie company one day. The waiting room was crowded with a menagerie of women all hopeful of getting a part in the films. From the inner office the casting director came out to select some types of feminine pulchritude for a picture. The mob of women perceived him and then swarmed around him. Surrounded by these she-devils he stood white, shaking and swearing. Finally, with a tremendous effort, he shook them off, and then ordered them to be seated, so that he could pick out the various types he wanted. It amused me a little to see how furious the rest got when he selected some types, for like most women, they were very jealous of one another.
